View Full Version : Geforce 7900GS Code 12 Problem (not enough resources)

03-04-07, 12:21 AM
If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it, because I'm at wit's end. Here we go:

Core Duo E6300
Asus P5B-VM DO(microATX Q965)
2gigs of DDR2 800
PNY Geforce 7900GS
Windows Vista Home Premium (32bit)

Basically, Windows Vista won't let me use the card because there's not enough resources. I should also point out that the Geforce 7900GS is the only expansion card in my system right now--nothing else.

Any ideas?

You may need to upgrade your mobo's BIOS.

Yeah, I was thinking that's probably the case.

Ugh, it's still not working, even after a bios update.:headexplode:

What are the chances this is a defective motherboard?

Got it working. Flashed to a beta bios and now everything works. Asus support told me they're having significant issues with Nvidia 7XXX series coupled with Vista.

well mind sharing where this beta bios is?

It was listed on their site, don't know if it's therE anymore. But...


But it's only for the P5B-VM DO mobo.
